We do not disclose information about identifiable individuals to our advertisers, but we may provide them with aggregate information about our users (for example, we may inform them that 500 men aged under 30 have clicked on their advertisement on any given day).

Where we store your personal data
All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site and/or our App, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site and or our App; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO KEEP YOUR INFORMATION SAFE
Protect your passwords
Choose a password that is difficult for others to guess. For example, don’t use your pet’s name, your birthday, or 1234. Preferably, use a mixure of letters, numbers and symbols.
It’s safest to use different passwords for different accounts. If one password is compromised, the rest of your accounts will still be safe.
If you need to write down your passwords, keep them hidden somewhere (not in your wallet, or by your phone).
Protect your information online
Make sure you’ve got up-to-date anti-virus software, especially if you’re shopping or banking online. Look for the padlock on a webpage, which suggests it’s secure.
Emails from people you don’t know often contain viruses that let others access your computer. Don’t click on any links or attachments and delete the emails without responding.
Never email personal details like your bank account or credit card number to anyone, even if you think they’re a friend. You don’t always know who you’re dealing with online.
